NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Parts of Middle Tennessee are beginning to clean up after strong thunderstorms pushed through the state Monday.
The strong storms began rumbling in the Nashville and surrounding areas early Monday morning and continued throughout the afternoon.
Multiple tornado warnings were put into effect throughout the day for parts of Tennessee, including Rutherford, Cannon and Bedford counties but expired a short time later.
Damage: Penny-sized hail was reported in Lafayette around 3:30 a.m.
Trees were reported down in Dickson on Haliburton Road off of Cedar Creek Road. Trees were also reported along Highway 49 east and Highway 48 north.
Several areas, including Dickson, Rutherford and Bedford counties have reported downed trees and minor structural damage.
In the Vanleer Community, in Dickson County, a mobile home was destroyed on Haliburton Road. The home was said to be vacant. No injuries were reported.
In Rutherford County, the area around Plainview Road, Sledge Road and Hoover Gap Road saw significant damage. At least three homes had roof damage.
A Plainview Road property appeared to have suffered the most damage. A barn was flattened, siding was peeled and a portion of the roof was gaped open. Two people were home at the time. There were no injuries reported.
High winds also crumpled a metal roof on a barn at an adjacent property.
One-half mile down the road, another barn was ripped apart. Nearly half the roof was gone, as well as a back wall.
